    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Well just been for an ATOS assessment for ESA, the lady was lovely and so sympathetic, i have a broken leg and walk with a crutch, i am waiting for surgery in the next 8 weeks approx to remove all the metalwork from my leg as it keeps giving way hence the crutch, she asked questions and said she wasnt going to ask me to do the physical assessment as she could see i would struggle....after the assessment she said i have to tell you that they will deem me fit for work as i could sit at a desk and do a different job....what i couldnt understand is thats she said if i could have gave her a date for the operation she would have passed me straight away.....how weird i dont understand why??????:-x

she said i will probably be able to get JSA, but i explained i already have a job but due to the job i do(care support worker) is the reason i cant work until after the operation and i'm back on 2 feet, so how can i get JSA if i have a job i dont understand, can anyone shed any light for me??

 

thanks for any advice i'm so confused!!!!!!!!

I would get in touch with the council and explain, they should be able to provide details of someone that can help.

They will ask your specialists/doctors for reports.

 

Appeal and if that fails re-appeal, they are a joke.

 

Also contact the DWP/ESA and ask for a copy of the report.

You will be surprised what rubbish they write.

 

This happened to me. I won in the end and they backdate any payments that were due.

 

Keep strong.

I didn't think it was up to Atos whether you passed or not. I thought the report went to the DWP to make the final decision ?

In almost every case the DWP rubber stamp the ATOS assessment, after all they both have a vested interest in getting claimants off benefits, so in OP's case the HCP could predict with almost 100% accuracy that the OP had failed because the HCP had awarded less than 15 points, it's a done deal.

If you fail the assessment, appeal, you will still receive the assessment rate of Esa which is £67.50 until the appeal is heard, if you win the appeal all monies will be backdated, there is a very long backlog for appeals to be heard so expect to wait up to a year for the appeal to be heard, this should give you a little time before you have to return to your Job.

Forgive me for being thick, but surely if you are working you would get sick pay from your employer, even if just SSP. To get such all you would need to do is get a sick note from your doctor and give it to your employer. Or have i been out of the world of work so long that they have changed that as well?

 

I know last time i broke my leg (and a few other bones after a motorbike crash) I was not allowed to do any different work until my doctor was satisfied i was completely fit. That time i was off for nearly a year. All the time I got sick money from DHSS even when the money from my employer ran out (I then got weekly tax rebates).

that doctor had the guts to tell you there and then you failed.

 

but it shows whats wrong with what they doing, the system is designed to eg. say you can do a desk job however it takes no account that you still have to travel to work and to the desk, you likely would be breaching health and safety at the place of work eg. if a fire could you get out quickly and safely, and the fact you first have to job hunt which itself is physically demanding. Not to mention if you due to have surgery in 2 months its doubtful at all if anyone would take you on in my view you unemployable.

In order to get SSP, you need to be earning a certain amount of money each week.

You are better off to appeal if you do fail, that way you will be paid at the assessment rate.
